i would like to make, is 20 years ago, i became the luckyest man on earth because michelle obama married me. i just want you to know, next year we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. many jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. because of the resilience and determination of the american people, we have begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we have seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. housing has begun to rise. the question tonight is not where we have been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says, if we cut taxes, skew toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations we will be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it is important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united sta
to be an ideologue for the past few years. obama seemed to be like a team sitting on a lead. i would not have said smog it, i would have just said somebody who did not seem to be terribly hungry for it. -- i would not say smug, just somebody that was not hungry for it. i did not really big in these examples after, i do not particularly care for them. -- these instant polls, i didn't care for them. when you see who did the best job, obama 25, romney 67. obama did better than expected 21%, worse than expected 61%. romney did 82% better than expected, at 10% said they thought he did worse than they expected. my guess is the 10% or partisans. democracy first, a democratic polling firm. romney has a good night, but no evidence of changing the game. i agree with them completely on the first that romney had a good night. i think we will have to see a minute whether it changed the game. walmart sponsored their walmart focus groups with momentum analysis, a democratic polling firm, one of glen's partners together. they suggested a monster lot of walmart moms, it was a win for romney. the people in the grou
. host: thank you. guest: there is no question -- president obama had a jobs bill last year. as it at scale wit hh the problems we faced? no. but it was a jobs bill. the republicans had no use for it. it was put aside because they did not want to have the present have a success. they were not interested in creating jobs. do they have a jobs plan? there is no record that cutting tax creates jobs. the republicans have been a obstructionists, but i do think the democrats need to be bolder and put forward many more ideas about how to create jobs. in my mind the democratic party is a coalition of interest. the republican party i think will possibly expire because it has become so extremist. it risks extinction in a country going through such demographic shifts. it is primarily a white, older party to that. -- today. it doesn't understand how they will operate. they will throw as much money and do the vote suppression which about 11 courts have said we're not going to buy into the idea of bogus voter fraud to impair the greatest rights america has. which is to vote. host: we have
with obama for four years. now they can say we can tax you for doing nothing. i will give the other party a try. i will let the republicans have this one and see what they can do in a few years. if they suck, my vote will change again. host: interesting call. now we are on the line in pennsylvania with pstill phylis. turn down the tv. caller: hi. host: you are an independent. what are you thinking right now? caller: i will not vote for biden. he sounds crazy, always granting. nothing he says makes sense to me. as far as obama, i watch him. when he went overseas and talk about how we need to apologize for everything we do. and then i heard an interview that he gave with someone when he said that after his mother- in-law had surgery that it would be a good idea if an older person lived on pain pills instead of having their problem taken care of. another thing, and egos around the country and talks, he looks almost like the rabble-rousers' when he goes around the country, it looks almost like a rabble rouser. host: gene is an independent. good morning at. -- jean. caller: i will not vote for
to get to jeff. >> two years ago, barack obama warned about the subprime crisis. john mccain, while barack obama was warning about what we had to do, was the tralee giving an interview to "the wall street journal" say that he is all for cutting regulations. john mccain is a good man, but he thought that the answer is the tried and true republican response -- deregulate, deregulate. so you have deregulation, the belief that wall street would self regulate itself. barack obama was talking about reinstating those regulations. john, on 20 different occasions, called for more deregulation. he said he wants to do for the health care industry, deregulate it and let the free market move like he did for the banking industry. so deregulation was the promise. guess what. those people who say don't go into debt, they can barely pay to fill their gas tank. i asked a guy named joe. i said, julie, how much does it cost to fill your tank? he said i don't know. i never have enough money to do it. the middle class needs relief, tax relief. they needed now. >> the governor, if you like to respond to w
be taken advantage of. >> senator? >> well gwen, two years ago barack obama warned about the sub prime mortgage crisis. john mccain said shortly after that in december he was surprised there was a sub prime mortgage problem. john mccain while barack obama was warning about what we had to do was literally giving an interview to "the wall street journal" saying that i'm always for cutting regulations. we let wall street run wild. john mccain and he's a good man, but john mccain thought the answer is that tried and true republican response, deregulate, deregulate. so what you had is you had overwhelming "deregulation." you had actually the belief that wall street could self-regulate itself. and while barack obama was talking about reinstating those regulations, john on 20 different occasions in the previous year and a half called for more deregulation. as a matter of fact, john recently wrote an article in a major magazine saying that he wants to do for the health care industry deregulate it and let the free market move like he did for the banking industry. so deregulation was the promise
